INFORMATIVE SPEECH
(Assignment)
Public Speaking is the communicating of knowledge that is understandable. Through informative speeches, people are able to give others the benefit of their learning and expertise.

1. Choose a topic that you can research and inform your audience about. Do not inform us about something by going through the physical actions, instead, simply tell and explain the topic to the audience. 2. Developmental Skill: Continue the use of the demonstration/informative speech outline. Applying supporting materials and citing evidence. 3. Time: 5-8 minutes (Four point penalty for every 30 seconds under or over) 4. Grading: 200 possible points (Presentation-120 points, Complete sentence outline-60 points, and Visual Aids-20 points) 5. Presentation: Note cards with a key-word outline may be brought up with you. You may write out your introduction, definitions, and quotes for accuracy. Please do not write out your speech and take it up with you to speak. 6. Outline: A COMPLETE SENTENCE OUTLINE WITH A TECHNICAL PLOT is to be turned in to the instructor before you speak. Use the same format as you did for the demonstration speech with one addition. The addition is the technical plot which serves two purposes. First, the technical plot analyzes the quality of your speech by labeling the supporting materials in the left hand margin. This allows you to check for different types of supporting materials and to ensure you have a sufficient amount for the speech. Second, the technical plot provides stage directions for the speaker which will enhance the delivery and help the speaker to become familiar of when to show visual aids or utilize vocal variety in their speech. (e.g. show graph, pause, increase volume, show video, etc) 7. Supporting Materials: At least four different types of supporting materials must be used in your speech. The forms of supporting materials will be labeled in the left hand margin in the technical plot. 8. Bibliography: A standardized APA or MLA format is to be attached to your outline. Required: At least four different academic, print sources of which only one can be an internet source. (e.g. books, journals, magazines, newspapers, etc.) 9. Visual Aids: Use at least one form of a visual aid in your presentation. Remember the visual aid should serve the purpose of clarifying, simplifying, supporting and increasing the audience’s interest and understanding. Reminder Checklist

2. A complete sentence outline that is typed with a technical plot and bibliography. 3. Include at least four different types of supporting materials, remember to cite them in your speech when needed. 4. Remember at least one visual aid.
